The local community in Buntingford, Hertfordshire are asking for urgent action to stop our town being inundated by increasingly large volumes of HGVS, construction traffic, large lorries and delivery vehicles. Buntingford is a small, rural town in East Hertfordshire and our local roads are being used as shortcuts for ever-increasing amounts of traffic, much of which is inappropriate due to it's sheer size. Many of these vehicles are either speeding or driving too fast for the road conditions and with a lack of consideration for residents, especially vulnerable road users including school children and the elderly. There are roads, including the High Street, that have unenforceable weight restrictions and many other residential roads that are being inundated by high volumes of inappropriate traffic where weight restrictions need to be applied. The noise and air pollution and sheer volume of traffic is making local people’s lives a misery and putting their physical and mental health at risk on a daily basis. We are calling on Buntingford Town Council, East Hertfordshire District Council, Hertfordshire County Council, East Hertfordshire Police and Hertfordshire Highways to take our concerns seriously and put a plan of action into place to mitigate the situation before near misses become serious injuries and fatalities. Please sign our Petition if you feel that action needs to be taken and measures put in place (including enforceable weight restrictions) to reduce the number of HGVs and lorries moving through our town.
